The reason that no release date has been posted is that we are nowhere near to having a release date yet.

Does that mean that the previous "end of 2012/early 2013" has been blown out of the water? As an iPad 1 owner, I have to consider when I need to upgrade my hardware...

"End of 2012" is now unlikely, but "Early 2013" is still the aim.

What are the likely minimum hardware/iOS requirements?

A relative in the cellphone business is going to keep an eye out for used iphone for me. I want to try to make sure it'll be Scrivener for iOS compatible.

(Subforum link in first post sends me to: "You are not authorised to read this forum", so I'm posting question here, apologies if it's the wrong place.)

Thanks for the update, Keith! (Just remembered it's a whole year since I met you at BristolCon!)

@wordchiseler - assuming that Scrivener can even run on an iPhone (I suspect not, based on screenshots - not all apps can run on both sized devices) I think you're looking at a 3GS minimum. My husband has upgraded his to iOS6, but my 3G wouldn't even run iOS4 at a usable speed.

Blimey, a whole year - I meant to attend this year, too, whoops. I didn't realise it was you. :)

This is one of the few forums where I still have my old, anonymous username - I'm Anne Lyle everywhere else now!

If you just want a mobile device that's not too expensive, an iPod Touch that can run iOS 6 should suffice. I'm pretty sure the aim was to target both platforms with the same app, though that may be unrealistic if even 1/10th of Scrivener's capabilities are to be shoehorned onto the device. I'd wait until it's actually released before making a purchase, and then get the most advanced, least expensive device that will suit your needs.

Is your iOS subforum not available to all? I clicked on the link in your original post and was told that I am not authorized to read it.

Yes, it should be available to all - just head over to the Wish List forum if you can't get to it, though. We're not taking more suggestions at this time, though, I'm afraid - not for 1.0, that is - since development is now quite far along.

All the best,
Keith

Woo Hoo!!!! excellent news!!!
I know these things always take longer than what everyone hopes.. but Nano 2013 is almost 10 months away... so with just a bit of luck, and lots of finger-crossing, perhaps we'll have a beta for our iPads by then. :-)
Don't mind me.. get back to work!

We've been waiting patently... how much longer guys... I think a scapula / Scriv lite version for Ipad would help a lot ....

Still a while yet, sorry. Scriv for iPad isn't a simple application and it has taken a lot longer than we anticipated or hoped. We're hoping to start in-house beta-tests soon, but it will still be a fair while before we are ready to start selling it. (I'm not sure what "scapula" is - Scapple? If so, that's not even out for the Mac yet, let alone any other platforms.) Thanks for your patience, and for your enthusiasm.
